Are All Muslims Our Enemy?

My infinite wisdom has let me down again.

After 9/11 and reading about the reactions around the world, I concluded that America was soon to be tested.  Terrorism had definitely arrived on our virgin shores - and would not be going away until we learned how to deal with it. All Americans were confused. We quickly learned that the terrorists that  carried out the attack were neither stupid nor cowards. We didn't understand them at all. In our experience, educated, capable people just didn't drive airliners into buildings. But it was done.

What would motivate an individual to do such a horrendous act? Instantly, from our long exposure to the on-going terror faced by Israel, we knew the answer would be tied to the PEACEFUL RELIGION OF ISLAM. It was clearly in our best interest to study this, the second largest religion in the world. We obviously would have to know our new enemy better than we did before 9/11.

These Youtube videos provide a pretty good summary of Islam and it's danger to western and advanced societies. Unfortunately I've not been able to assure myself that all of the facts presented are accurate, yet I am reasonably sure they are. So please open the following links and let me know if you agree:

The Holy Book of Islam is the Quran. Mulims can not pick and choose the verses they like, and ignore those verses they do not like. All Muslims, moderate, radical, fundamentalist, fanatical or whatever . . . are supposed to obey the entire Quran.

Doesn't this fact indicate that ALL MUSLIMS are the enemy of non-believers (infidels) wherever they are?  This is a definitive question that I've asked two of my Muslim friends and neither has a ready answer . . . . ?  Why not.

Because the Quran does instruct ALL MUSLIMS that they are allowed to, and should, lie about anything if it will advance the expansion of Islam. Doesn't this apply to any question asked of a MUSLIM?  Apparently it does.

Bump -

I keep trying to find something I can like, or even simply accept, about Islam, but I can't.

Sharia law
Suicide bombings
Honor killings
Death to infidels

None of it inspires me to believe that Islam is a valid, peaceful religion.

There may be moderate Muslims out there somewhere but my questions? Where are they and why are they not stepping up to take their religion back from the radicals who have taken it over?

I hold those radical, 'bomb-throwing', supposed Christians, like the loons from Westboro, in utter contempt and I condemn and dismiss their bastardized version of Christianity whenever I can.

I see few Muslims willing to do the same with their religion.

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 

For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

What Comes Next- And When

The speed of progress is astounding.  Watching television a few days ago I listened to Mark Cuban talk about subjects that I know little about. It was fascinating. He started with cars. Automatic cars. Driverless cars. Cars that think for themselves. All of which ended with a conversation about "artificial intelligence". Frankly, some of the discussion went right over my head. 
He began talking about the growth of computer knowledge and abilities that will result in the power to exponentially grow. Ultimately the amount of knowledge will exceed that of human beings. At that point "artificial intelligence" will control human beings. 

Mr. Cuban stopped there and asked "when this happens in the future, and it will, where will human beings fit in the composition of the universe".  
Several brilliant minds have been working on the answer but no consensus exists - except one. The transition from the dominance of human beings on earth will end will be be replaced b…
